What do I wear?

Quite simply, whatever makes you feel most comfortable. Your comfort is our first priority and we will work around whatever clothing you decide to wear. Traditionally though, most massage and body work is done with the client lying unclothed under a sheet or blanket. The therapist then exposes whatever body part they are working on leaving the rest of the client completely covered.

Is there anything I should do?

Yes. Prior to the massage you should avoid eating anything heavy for about 2 hours. A light snack is fine, but if eating a full meal, allow enough time for thorough digestion. And after the massage, drink plenty of water. This will help flush out any toxins stirred up by the massage and allow you to maintain that fresh relaxed feeling for longer.

How long does it take?

Depending on the service you choose, it can be anywhere from 30 min to a couple of hours. Most people opt for either a 30 or 60 min session when it comes to massage. However, 90 and 120 min sessions are also available. Body wraps are usually 45-60 min. and Hot Stone massages are generally about 75 min. Don’t forget to include an additional 10 min for paperwork on your fist visit.

What can I expect to happen?

When you arrive the therapist will greet you and hand you a brief health form to fill out (first visit only). Once completed the therapist will then review it with you to make sure they understand everything and to ensure you haven’t forgotten anything important. After reviewing the form, your therapist will escort you into a private therapy room where they will explain to you step by step what will happen during the session. After they’ve finished explaining, the therapist will leave the room and allow you to disrobe to your comfort level. Once you’re ready they’ll enter the room and begin the session. And finally, when the session is over your therapist will discuss with you how the session went, ask for your feedback, and offer suggestions for the future.

How often should I get a massage?

There is no set answer to this question. It comes down to what you need, what you can afford and what you have time for. Everyone is different, and after consulting your therapist a treatment plan tailored specifically for you and your needs can be created.
